Elaborate Description

When the LEP uncover a goblin operation, they find that a human must be involved. Due the last year’s incident, their instinct tells them that the culprit is Artemis Fowl. Although Fowl did not make deals with goblins, but has obtained information that his father is alive. The LEP and Fowl make a deal in which Fowl helps identify the humans dealing with goblins while the LEP helps Fowl rescue his father.

A complicated plot unfolds in both situations making use of everyone’s key personality traits and skills. Artemis Fowl’s quick thinking and long-term planning. Butlers strength and combat ability. Commander Root’s leadership and persuasion. Captain Short’s cunning and flying skills. Foals’ theories and technology know how. Mulch’s stealing and grinding.

Due to these events, many of the characters show depth and growth of their personalities. Willingness to forgive, accept responsibility for actions taken, and understand others positions.
